Myriapoda (centipedes and millipedes)[edit]

Stone centipede http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lithobius (Common representative species. Represents Lithobius foricatus. Found under rocks in damp areas.)

Tiger centipede http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scolopendra_polymorpha (Large striped species, found in desert areas.)

Soil centipede http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Centipede#Geophilomorpha (Long, threadlike centipede. Represents various geophilomorphs. Found in soil, but you probably guessed that.)

Cave centipede http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Centipede#Scutigeromorpha (Generalised giant tropical scutigeramorph. Very long legs, evolved to locate prey in the dark, and terrify humanoids. Possibly painful (but not deadly) bite.)

House centipede http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scutigeridae (Similar to above, but lives in your house. Name is arguably problematic. Suggest "fortress centipede".)

Greater centipede http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scolopendra_gigantea (Renamed giant centipede. A tropical/cave-dwelling species (although there is presently no way to confine a creature to caves in tropical biomes). Preys on small mammals, such as bats, and has a bite that can cause medical complications in the bite area, although there are no recorded fatalities.)

Pill millipede http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pill_millipede (Primitive millipede that can roll into a ball, similar to that of a woodlouse.)

Shocking pink dragon millipede http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Desmoxytes_purpurosea (Loudly colored tropical species. Produces cyanide that can poison those who handle it.)

Yellow-spotted millipede http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Harpaphe_haydeniana (Similar to above, but tasteless in a different way.)

Chongololo http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Archispirostreptus_gigas (a.k.a the giant African millipede. Tropical forests are its habitat.)

Black millipede http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tachypodoiulus_niger
